The end.

So I've been having a good think about this blog for the last few days as I try to stock-take on my life, the things I do and where it's getting me. While this blog has been part of my life for a LONG time...11.5 years and has seen me go through A LOT, I feel in today's day and age, a blog just doesn't stand the same place it did 11.5 years ago.

I've come to notice that when I first started this blog, it was a place for me to gather my learning and thoughts and share it with the world (and myself, I've been a believer that teaching is the best way to learn). But as things have changed, my time has also changed and so have my priorities.

And thus, I have come to the conclusion that this blog has served me very well, but it's time to let it go. I still write.. a lot, but not in a blog, but more in the format of daily-self-reflection which helps me look at my everyday life in a very special way and that's why I've had a chance to properly think this through.

For those of you who have been following my blog all along, I applaud you for keeping up this all this time, for those of you who stumble upon this blog some time in the future out of some random link you clicked on the internet (or whatever it's called by that time), then hey, here's a little peek into what goes on in my mind.

Other than that, do me a favor and please read a lot. Books are called classics for a reason and that goes for any art form or creative item. I hope whatever you read here inspires to push yourself to a new level and achieve what you've been doubting you can do.

And with that, I can only say, I'm really thankful for all that has happened in the last 11.5 years and the whole 36 years of my life so far. I look forward to one day reading this again in the future and getting that warm sensation in my chest of remembering these times.

Have a fantastic next 10 days....that are going to last forever.

It's been worth it.

Next station...next post!

Hello hello! How's it going? This is going to be a very quick entry because Im on the train at the moment and I'm rushing a few emails before I head back home, pack up and head to the sack. Got a long week ahead but just an update that after a whole 6 weeks of non-stop work, stress and eating absolute crap.. I'm finally human again.

Unless I don't get enough sleep tonight and end up a zombie tomorrow, then we're back to square 1...eek!

Enjoy the next 10 days, I'll be back, so much has happened :P

Laughing is done

Well the Laugh Festival is officially over and boy was it a blast in both the history books of comedy in HK as well as the amount my brain can handle. I am still quite burnt out from the whole thing but heck, it was awesome we pulled it off! Not to mention I got to do back to back English then Cantonese shows at the start!

So how are things? I'm so busy catching up it's literally not registering that we're already in October. I've got a packed weekend which is not a good sign because that means I need to catch up twice as fast before next week starts!! Yikes!

Well this is going to be a quick one because I've still got 30 items on my to do list that I really want to get done before the clock hits 12am and I force myself into bed so I can get enough sleep for one. I've been running on insufficient sleep for almost the whole month of September and I can feel it wearing me down a lot faster these few days, though I'm getting better now that the festival's over.

Good thing is, I learned a heck of a lot during the festival, the details of running shows over and over again, handling people and manpower, dealing with sudden changes (eg. we got a T10 typhoon which wrecked one weekend's shows!)

And now I have a couple of weeks before my other madness begins! Good thing is, my web business is pretty much off and I only have 1 small project on hand before I can finally properly shut down my projects to do list and put 100% attention on developing comedy and hopefully even be able to sit down and write some stuff!

So here's to a fantastic next 10 days, I hope by then I'll not only be clear of my backlog but also be well rested so I can tackle the remainder of the year! Looking forward to all the crazy stuff the next few months have in store for me!
